Mountains
* '''Bein Bhann''' - otherwise known as the Applecross mountains.
'' Glencoe and Fort William''
* '''Ben Nevis'' - the highest start from the distillery on the road north.
* '''Aonach Eagach''' - a superb ridge above Glencoe.
* '''The three sisters of Glencoe''' - shapely peaks on the other side of the glen.
 
''Cairngorms''
A range second only in height to the Nevis range, located east of the A9. There is a railway up Cairn Gorm (which is not the highest). However you make the height, it's relatively easy to walk more peaks, with excellent views.
It is the only area in the UK where wild reindeer can be seen - re-introduced from Scandinavia after becoming extinct in Scotland. Red squirrels are also to be seen in the remains of the old Caledonian Pine Forests.
 
* '''Ben Macdhui'''
* '''Braeriach'''
* '''Lairig Ghru''' - not a mountain but probably the most spectacular mountain pass in the UK - making a fine and well known walk.
